Summer 1 - Week 2
We will continue to work on reasoning problems and look at our learning from last week's lesson too. We will add and subtract decimal numbers and use this knowledge to solve word problems. In decimals, we will work with tenths, hundredths and thousandths.
Summer 1 - Week 1
We will work on solving "Reasoning Problems" which are set out in a similar way to those we will get used to solving in Year 6 and which are part of the SATS assessments. We will also begin to convert decimals to fractions and vice versa. We will also start to look at conversion of metric measurements of length and distance.
Spring 2 - Week 5
In our fraction work we will face a number of challenges which will ensure that we understand and can apply what we have learned during this hapf term.
Spring 2 - Week 4
We will finish looking at reflection by reflecting a shape in 4 quadrants and giving its new co-ordinates. We will then move on to tally and frequency charts. During this week we will also multiply fractions.
Spring 2 - Week 3
We will continue looking at reflections using horizontal, vertical and diagonal mirror lines. We will also use co-ordinates to plot both shapes and mirror lines before reflecting them. We will continue to add and subtract fractions and solve problems which challenge the children to show that they have a deep understanding of when and how to convert fractions.
Spring 2 - Week 2
We will continue to add and subtract fractions using visual images to help us. We will complete our work looking at translation and move on to reflection of shapes horizontally and vertically.
Spring 2 - Week 1
We continue to work on fractions. This week we have revised equivalent fractions and also improper fractions and mixed numbers. We have begun to add and subtract fractions. We will start looking at translation of shapes and what this means.
Autumn 2 - Week 6
Our focus has continued to be on perimeter and also on calculating the area of rectilinear shapes.
Autumn 2 - Week 5
This week we have looked at how to calculate the perimeter of rectilinear shapes.
Autumn 2 - Week 4
Our focus for the next few weeks will be to look at formal written methods for short and long multiplication.
Autumn 2 - Week 3
This week, we will be moving on to multiplying and dividing whole numbers and decimals by 10/100/1000. We will identify the simple rules for being able to do these quickly and effectively. We will also begin to focus on volume of 3D shapes and the area of 2D shapes and carry this on to next week.
Autumn 2 - Week 2
We will make our own 3d shapes from straws and construction equipment and think about the properties of the shapes we are making. We will also learn to identify 3D shapes from the 2D nets which make them. We will also be identifying prime numbers, explaining what they are and being able to recall all prime numbers up to 20 and then look at other rules to identify all prime numbers up to 100.
Autumn 2 - Week 1
We will start this term by looking at what we mean by multiples and factors of given numbers. Looking at what rules can be applied to help us work these out quickly. We will also remind ourselves about the names and properties of 3D shapes.
Autumn 1 Week 7
This week we will continue to use both formal and mental strategies to solve addition and subtraction problems. We will continue to find missing angles, this time, looking at missing angles within different triangles.
Autumn 1 Week 6
We revised our understanding of formal methods of addition and applied to real life problems. We began to revise formal methods of subtraction too. We seem to really enjoy these formal methods and MUST continue to develop our mental strategies as well!
We will be using our knowledge of angles to find missing angles on a straight line and in a full circle.
Autumn 1 Week 5
We used our knowledge and understanding of Number, place value and partitioning to complete a number of maths challenges and also enjoyed working in small teams to solve a series of problems. We began learning about Roman Numerals too - up to 1000 or M! We will start to draw given angles, again with increasing accuracy.
Autumn 1 Week 4
This week we focused on rounding numbers to the nearest 10,100,1000,10 000 and 100,000! We also counted backwards and forwards in steps of 10, 100, 1000, 10 000 and 100 000. We also looked at measuring angles, with increasing accuracy.
Autumn 1 Week 3
This week we are focusing on estimating angles with increasing accuracy. We will also be trying to identify and estimate angles in the environment. We are also partitioning numbers to 1 million and looking at the value of each digit within a number. This will help us to order numbers in both ascending and descending order.
Autumn 1 Week 2
This week we will be looking at different types of Angles and their degree range and then comparing them with each other. We are also using our knowledge of place value to add powers of 10 (100, 1000, 10000,100000) to numbers within 1 million.
Autumn 1 Week 1
This week we are continuing to use our knowledge of place value to order whole numbers and we will be extending our knowledge and understanding to include negative numbers. We will use negative numbers in the context of the real world.
